SAP Business One & Crystal Reports


Business Intelligence is now available to small and midsized companies

Crystal Reports 2008 for SAP Business One is now fully available to the tens of thousands of companies running SAP Business One worldwide. With built in business intelligence for SAP Business One, small and midsized companies can now get a true 360 degree view of their business with easy to use tools and pre-built reports. Orchestra has been bringing our readers the frontline news on Crystal Reports for SAP Business One, so we thought it fitting to put together this resource.

Crystal Reports for SAP Business One: Overview

Crystal Reports is a "business intelligence" tool. This is a hot new buzzword, but it's meaningful. The old days of "reporting" are over, and we're entering a new model where companies need up-to-date information and they need to massage it to look for opportunities in the business.  A static report showing previous days sales is great, but a real time widget on your company dashboard showing up-to-the-hour sales volume is better. SAP is making this possible with Crystal Reports for SAP Business One and the other BusinessObjects product Suite.
